This Week

“Africa is no dark continent — some distant impoverished mystery cut off from the enlightenment of western democracy, technology and prosperity,” writes Michael Swan. “Africa is becoming an engine of the future, especially the future of the universal church.”

Best dramatic films

Gerald Schmitz chooses his best dramatic films of the past year. Topping the list is the multiple Golden Globe-winning film La La Land.

Last frontier

New Jersey cardinal

Cardinal Joseph Tobin was installed as New Jersey’s first Roman Catholic cardinal Jan. 6 at a solemn mass in Newark’s Sacred Heart Cathedral during which he declared that the church “is neither an elite club nor static container of truth.”
